How to get rid of acne scars on nose? (Photo)

So I have these acne scars left over on my nose, it's been several years already and they are caused by picking on the acnes when I had them, I don't grow acnes anymore, but these excessive tissued scars drive me crazy, they still look pretty obvious under the light. I have done fraxel 3 times and chemical peel once on my nose but still look like this. Some advices would be much appreciated thanks!

Nasal tip scarring

In my opinion the CO2 laser is the gold standard for scar revision of this sort. Seek out a Board-certified surgeon who has experience with laser surgery.

Acne Scar on Nose -- Lasers (Fraxel, Co2, Erbium), Microneedling/PRP, Subcision, Fillers, Tattooing, Surgery

These raised scars can be treated with lasers and a combination of microneedling and fillers. It may take more than one session to get optimal results, but even one session will improve the look. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Acne scars on the nose that are elevated

You have to remove those scars by cutting them down. This can done with lasers. The healing takes a while but would be worth it.

I would treat this with either the Infini or CO2 laser. This is going to be a difficult case to get near normal but I'm sure these technologies will help and are better than what you have had.
